There’s been quite a bit of buzz lately about the collision of the worlds of technology and fitness. For example, this week, Under Armour purchased MapMyFitness (an awesome app I started drafting a review of weeks ago). This opens up the door for other fitness brands to begin merging and/or collaborating with tech companies that manage the apps people like me use on a daily basis.
But I digress…
The real news is that I BOUGHT A FITBIT!
Not only did I buy a fitbit ZIP, but I got an awesome deal on it! There is an amazing Living Social coupon that expires in 2 days where you spend $25 to get $50 to spend at Brookstone. The ZIP normally costs $59.99 before taxes, so you can see that I got a pretty sweet deal after all was said and done!
I was already using the fitbit app for my phone, so I was quickly able to sync my new device with my existing account.
I’d conducted a fair amount of research on the fitbit before I purchased it. The three main things I look for before making a new purchase:
- Will I use it regularly?
- Is it duplicating something I already have?
- Is it any good?
